Now, whether or not particular images or designs are copyrighted is a whole 'nother ballgame, but I believe in this case, if you aren't licensed to use it, you are taking a risk.
I did a quick google search and found this. Again, not an expert, but it leads me to believe that some of their images, and likely their logo/name is protected, and you should be licensed. I don't know that they would actually go after people, but that's up to you. Again, just a quick google and gut response, not a legal analysis http://www.licensing.org/news/press-...-takes-flight/
I agree. You can technically try it and people do, but it would NOT be legal to do it. I just don't risk it...
